Ashley’s Migraine Story

I am a 31 year old female. I have suffered from migraines all my life. About 4 years ago, I started getting “severe” migraines. Went to a doctor and had all kinds of test done. The MRI showed a cyst on my brain. My doctor thought it would be best to just give me Fioricet and samples of other medicine. He never bothered to inform me that all the medicine I was taking does cause REBOUND HEADACHES. I would go two weeks straight with a migraine. Finally got sent to a Neurologist and was told that I was taking too much meds. I no longer take the Fiorcet unless needed. I still get migraines alot, but come to find out I also started developing seasonal allergies. I feel they contribute to the migraines along with the cyst.

    Hi Ashley,

    It’s really not all that uncommon for there to be a link between allergies and Migraine attacks. My son’s Migraines are quite often triggered by an allergic reaction. He has pretty severe allergies, so unfortunately this isn’t a strange occurrance. Have you read this post yet? Expert Answer: Migraine and Allergies
